Virtualization: Defined

New Book Recommends Diskeeper Defrag in the Virtual Platform

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2009) - Diskeeper Corporation, innovators in performance and reliability technologies, today announced its endorsement in a new book titled, "Virtualization: Defined. A Primer for the SMB Consultant," by Dave Sobel, CEO of Evolve Technologies. The book details the management challenges experienced in the virtual environment and the importance of disk defragmentation for a successful performing virtual system.

Virtualization is a valuable, time and money saving asset for businesses, promising dramatically improved efficiency and availability of resources and applications. As specialists in information technology (IT) solutions for small businesses, Evolve Technologies ( takes the opportunity to explore in depth, the basics of virtualization technology. In this essential guide, Sobel is looking to provide SMB consultants and IT professionals with better understanding and utilization of virtualization technology to grow their business and increase efficiency and productivity.

"Continually managing disk performance and disk fragmentation is key to a successful implementation with virtualization. As the industry leader, Diskeeper software provides this solution," said author Dave Sobel. "My goal is to help others put this technology to use and see the benefits in their bottom line and Diskeeper is an integral part of that."

Defragmentation plays a major role in aiding the transition to virtual systems as file fragmentation causes the operating system to pass extra and unnecessary I/O traffic to the storage sub-system. As virtual machines (VMs) share a common hardware platform, excessive and unnecessary use of hardware/storage resources by one VM slows not only the requesting VM, but all other VMs on that platform. Defragmentation of hypervisor and guest operating systems ensures optimized I/O traffic is generated by every VM increasing performance for the entire virtual infrastructure.

Diskeeper Corporation has been at the forefront of the virtualization movement. Certified for Windows Server® 2008 Hyper-V™ and a VMware® Technology Alliance Partner, Diskeeper has been fully compatible with virtual machines for years, offering the leading low-memory usage optimization technology and solving system-slowing-fragmentation, automatically.
